EL competition for secondary schools from Prague and the Central Bohemia
City & Guilds in the Czech Republic organized an English language contest for secondary school students from Prague and the Central Bohemia in the winter term 2011. The contest was supported by the Prague Council deputy mayor of the capital city of Prague, Ing. Antonín Weinert, CSc.
Forty-two schools from Prague and Central Bohemia took part in the contest, gaving their students a chance to compete for attractive prizes such as a trip to England - provided by the PRO TRAVEL travel agency - vouchers for City & Guilds exams and a voucher for a language course at the Glossa language school. Other prizes were donated by Accenture, City & Guilds, Channel Crossings, Englishbooks.cz, English Link, the HR Forum, and Macmillan. Other partners of the contest were Anglické gymnázium SOŠ a VOŠ, s.r.o., and the popular website for everyone who loves English - www.helpforenglish.cz.
The goal of the competition was to assess participants at the B2 level using City & Guilds’ written and spoken tests. Reading and listening were assessed in the school round organized by participating schools themselves. Productive skills - speaking and writing - were tested in the final round organized by City & Guilds with the help of Anglické gymnázium SOŠ a VOŠ, s.r.o.
While students were proving their knowledge, their teachers were enjoying a variety of seminars at the beautiful European House venue in Prague. They could also leaf through books on the stand staffed by Englishbooks.
All the contestants, their teachers and partners gathered for the final prize awarding ceremony. Since it took place the same day as all the testing and assessment, the assessors were very busy evaluating and identifying the best participants.
Congratulations to all those who took part - you did really well!
The final winner was Ms Kristýna Novotná from Gymnazium Jižní Město Praha.
